GfK' analysis of the French DIY market for seven product groups in the first four months of the year.

Analysis by GfK for seven product groups in the first four months of the year paints a mixed picture of the French DIY market. According to the analysis, sales in the hand tools product category were up by 29 per cent, with a volume increase of 25.2 per cent.

This was the smallest of the seven product groups with a volume of EUR 60 mio. The largest group by far is paints with a volume of EUR 321 mio, where value sales declined by 6.6 per cent and volume sales by 3.2 per cent.
